Owls. Those wild old creatures who drift through the night endlessly enquiring after the identity of nobody. Well, here’s the book to tell you about them.


  • Owls live on every continent in the world except Antarctica. [pg. 5]
  • There are more than 160 species of owl. [pg. 7]
  • The smallest owl in the world is the elf owl which grows no larger than five or six inches tall. The largest owl is the eagle owl which grows to a little over two feet tall. [pg. 7]
  • Owls rarely build nests – they usually move into nests built by other animals or birds. Although most owls live in hollow trees, some also live in barns, cacti, and in underground burrows. [pg. 11]
  • An owl can’t move its eyes in its eye sockets the way people can. In order to see what’s going on around it, an owl can turn its head all the way to the back, and then some. [pg. 12]
  • Owls can see better in the dark than they can in daylight. [pg. 14]

Conclusion. Fun.
